The museum, part of the Science Museum Group, is poised to become the cultural anchor for York Central, one of the largest city centre brownfield regeneration projects in the UK. York Central will re-route a major road that currently bisects the museum’s site, separating two of its main galleries, Great Hall and Station Hall. The new Central Hall, a circa 4,500 sqm building with a £16.5 million construction budget, will bridge the space between these two exhibition halls. The new addition is intended to create an appealing and compelling arrival experience and improve legibility and connectivity across the wider site.
Starting with the landmark exhibition in 2014, Built by Women has offered the opportunity to demonstrate the breadth of achievement in the building industry by women at the highest levels.
Women are underrepresented in the building professions: architecture (15–18%), engineering (4.5–13.7%), and construction (2.6%). Built by Women’s goal is to change this. Increasing the number of women in science, technology, engineering, architecture and mathematics is critical to our country’s ability to compete globally.
The purpose of this competition is to recognize the significant but often overlooked work of women architects, landscape architects, urban designers, engineers, contractors, and developers in the Los Angeles metropolitan area.

Studio Muoto´s activities cover the fields of architecture, urbanism, design and scientific research. Muoto means 'form' in Finnish. Muoto's work often features minimal structures made of rough materials, as a means to combine different activities, and merge economical as well as aesthetic issues. Vertical diversity as an articulation between building and city scales is a recurrent figure in Muoto's projects. The office has been rewarded by several prizes, such as Holcim Awards 2014, Equerre d'Argent 2016, and Bauwelt 2017.
China is the largest consumer of cement and concrete in the world, the use of which has peaked in the first two decades of the twenty-first century. Used for the construction of extensive infrastructure and buildings, over the last twenty years renowned Chinese architects have been working in and studying the constructive limits and spatial and superficial effects of exposed concrete. In the process, they have created a wave of avant-garde architecture in China. Chinese Brutalism Today investigates the compositional, formal, and ornamental reasons for this architecture and its different surface finishes, from rough to smooth. This new wave of
The Type V City presents innovative research into urban material patterns, expanding the understanding of socio-economic and ecological vulnerability as influenced by building material properties through various systems of regulation, financing, and construction. 'Type V' is one of the International Building Code's construction types that rate levels of material combustibility. Since the early Twentieth Century, building codes used construction types to control material distribution across American cities. Code-based urban patterns emerged from these rules to define neighbourhood material characteristics and layer new material strata. The resulting cumulative protection from conflagration was achieved. However additional, unintentional cumulative performance was ignored. The
What do we mean by net zero energy? Zero operating energy? Zero energy costs? Zero emissions? There is no one answer: approaches to net zero building vary widely across the globe and are influenced by different environmental and cultural contexts.
Net Zero Energy Building: Predicted and Unintended Consequences presents a comprehensive overview of variations in 'net zero' building practices. Drawing on examples from countries such as the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Hong Kong, and China, Ming Hu examines diverse approaches to net zero and reveals their intended and unintended consequences.
Existing approaches often focus on operating energy: how to make
Inspired by the extraordinary engravings of the ruins of Ancient Rome by Giambattista Piranesi, Langenbach uses modern-day digital photography to document the same views that Piranesi captured over a quarter of a millennium ago, displaying some of the most iconic ruins of an ancient civilization on the planet.
Join design talks (d.talks) in a discussion on the role of design in an often overlooked topic: waste.
In two generations, we’ve shifted from refillable glass bottles to single-use packaging. Serial replacement has become invisible.
Our city has reduced tonnes of waste entering the landfill with recycling and composting options. If we envisioned a future of zero-waste, what’s left to be done?
To explore the subject, d.talks is bringing together a panel to talk about waste from different perspectives. The panel includes Lourdes Juan, founder of the Leftovers Foundation; Sharon Howland, leader of program management for waste and recycling at the City

Regenerative spaces are those that are rehabilitating, enriching and strengthening - they reverse the damaging effects of life’s challenges. We will explore what this looks like from multiple angles and broaden the discussion beyond the building.
A weeknight event where we define what regenerative spaces look and feel like across a range of users, sectors and services, from community health and international development to survivors of domestic violence.
We’ll use PechaKucha style presentations from pioneers in health, architecture and the community to spark a fresh discussion. Together, speakers and guests will develop ideas to inform the design of regenerative spaces.
